RSU Accepting Applications for Brad Henry International Scholarship to Study in Wales

The application is quickly approaching for Rogers State University’s most esteemed opportunity to study overseas.

RSU will send one student demonstrating excellent academic qualifications, outstanding writing and communication skills, exemplary character, leadership qualities, maturity, and judgement to Wales (in the United Kingdom) as part of the Brad Henry International Scholar program. Application deadline is Friday, Sept. 22.

This student exchange program is funded and coordinated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE) and the University of Wales, Swansea.

Participants will spend the spring 2024 academic term as students at Swansea University on its campus in Swansea, Wales, during which time students will have the opportunity to travel extensively through European countries.

Swansea University is a public research university. First chartered as University College of Swansea in 1920 as the fourth college of the University of Wales, it changed its name in 1996 to the University of Wales Swansea.

  • Have submitted information, documents, acknowledgements, releases and authorizations as required by the State Regents

To apply for consideration as a Brad Henry International Scholar and participant in the Semester of Study Abroad Program, interested RSU students must submit a completed application with their resume, an official transcript of all college or university work, a typewritten essay of 300 words which sets forth their academic and/or professional goals and how the experience as a Brad Henry International Scholar will advance those goals, and two letters of recommendation.
